Linkage Analysis and QTL Mapping in Tetraploids


Kelly Zarka, Michigan State University

This page provides video for the webinar “Linkage analysis and QTL mapping in tetraploids” presented by Dr. Christine Hackett at the SolCAP workshop at the Potato Association of America meeting in August 2010. This workshop is in two parts: linkage analysis, and QTL mapping. Both parts provide theory and analysis demonstrations for tetraploid species.

Presenter: Christine Hackett, Biomathematics and Statistics Scotland, Dundee, UK.

This workshop is in two parts: linkage analysis, and QTL mapping. The first part is an overview of the theory of segregation analysis and linkage analysis in an autotetraploid species, such as potato, followed by a demonstration of the software program TetraploidMap for Windows on some potato marker data from the cross Stirling x 12601ab1. The second part is an overview of QTL mapping in an autotetraploid species, followed by a demonstration of how to perform QTL mapping using TetraploidMap for Windows and how to compare different QTL models.

You can view the webinar below or at the SolCAP website.
